Publication on Cadmium in Food: second result of the German LExUKon project

Cadmium exposure from food was estimated using new food consumption data from the recent German food consumption survey (Nationale Verzehrsstudie II – NVS II). Based on these comprehensive data, information on the consumption of 545 individual food items by the German population was derived. With complementary concentrations of Cadmium in foodstuffs compiled from German and European authority programs as well as the published literature, estimates of intake from food were determined.
The manuscript as accepted for publication in Food Additives & Contaminants: Part A is available online.
